Reaction: α,α-trehalose 6-phosphate + phosphate = glucose 6-phosphate + β-D-glucose 1-phosphate
Systematic name: α,α-trehalose 6-phosphate:phosphate β-D-glucosyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme from Lactococcus lactis is specific for trehalose 6-phosphate. Differs from EC 18.104.22.168, α,α-trehalose phosphorylase, in that trehalose is not a substrate.
